When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:1-4 (NIV)
As we look to Pentecost Sunday which this year coincides with Memorial Day weekend, two things come to mind.
1. Remember those who have served in the military and pray for those serving now. Thank you to those who have and are serving.
2. Remember Pentecost. It is from the book of Acts which celebrates the birth of the church and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the believer’s life. Jesus said He would send a Comforter and the Holy Spirit is that and so much more. The Holy Spirit is: Comforter, Helper, Teacher, Guide, Our Peace, Joy and Power to live a holy life.
The Holy Spirit empowers us by giving us power, love and self-discipline. He empowers us to be witnesses and perform healing miracles. The Spirit gives us power to overcome spiritual opposition; gives gifts to each believer to use for ministry; empowers our prayer life. We each need the Holy Spirit to become all God wants us to become. Let’s be filled with His power daily.
The Lord has given Builders International favor to bring HOPE to many around the world.

So many lives have been transformed!
We invite you to please pray for us as we connect people who want to be part of the
